roethlisberger3851 Roethlisberger Suspension Reduced

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s suspension has reportedly been reduced from six games to four. “USA Today” reported NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell agreed to reduce the suspension after meeting with Roethlisberger and the quarterback’s representatives Friday morning. Roethlisberger was suspended for violating the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. Although not charged with a crime, he was accused of sexual assault twice over a nine-month period. At the time he handed down the suspension, Goodell said would reduce it to four games if Roethlisberger stayed out of trouble and followed guidelines for behavioral improvement. Roethlisberger has appeared in two preseason games, completing 10 of 14 passes for 143 yards and an interception. He will be eligible to return October 17th when the Steelers host the Cleveland Browns. Meantime, Steelers backup QB Byron Leftwich injured his knee in the team’s final preseason game Thursday night, meaning that third-stringer Dennis Dixon may start in next week’s season opener.
